Back around July of last year (7/10), I was fortunate enough to be on the receiving end of some Sarr'y generosity .
In an effort to spread his love of Sarr's, Yann sent me a number of newly sprouted Sarr seedlings. Opening the package, I found a wad of LFS, which upon closer examination revealed a tangled mess of miniature Sarr plants. The fist sized wad contained about 60-80 tiny plants, and it took one afternoon to divide the clump and plant the viable plants into a couple of garden starter trays. If you could call them plants at that point, as they were not much more than a strand or two of roots attached to small 1/4-1/2" long pitcher like leaves.
(Yann did an amazing job getting this many little plants to sprout & grow as well as he did, and I hoped to not let him down by killing them all off in one fell swoop!)
They have since been transplanted once, and will likely again soon.
Well, here is a couple of pictures of their current environment, with a portion of the plants showing (sorry for such poor pics). Some may note a few other plants growing in amongst them.
The largest plants are about 12" tall, and some have been recently overwhelmed by an unexpected overgrowth of Sphagnum moss. Here are a few of the plants shot individually. As they are (to me) all unknown crosses, possibly pure-bred or just total mutts, you can still see some nice parentage showing in a few of them, and as more begin to mature, they are indeed showing some highly desirable and excellent traits and color!
Not bad looking for about 10 months growth!
I do want to say "THANKS" again to Yann, for his wonderful generosity, and also his confidence in me not to kill them all off! (I actually only lost a few early on, and was surprised the rest did as good as they did.) They certainly are maturing a lot faster than I had experienced in the past, and many indeed look a lot older than they actually are. (I attribute a good part of it to the great start Yann did with them!)
And for those of you who may ask, they have been growing indoors for nearly their entire lives. (Nearly, as in that the first week or so after I got them, they were temporarily grown in a greenhouse exposed to the sun el'natural, until I could prep them and relocate them indoors.)
Thanks to Yann also, for helping to renew my love of growing Sarr's! (I can't give you all the credit for that, but indeed the majority!)
